Legendary Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, was reportedly rushed to hospital last week after suffering a second heart attack in two years.
The 2010 World Cup winning captain previously suffered a heart attack during a training session with Porto in 2019 and left the hospital five days after the incident. He retired from playing just over a year after his first scare at Porto.
Spanish outlet Hola stated that the Real Madrid icon was playing paddle tennis last week with some friends before suffering severe chest pains.
He was rushed to hospital, where after an examination by doctors, it was reportedly ruled out of being a high-risk problem.
The outlet claims Casillas was allowed to be discharged later that day from Quironsalud Madrid University Hospital.
Casillas, who spent most of his career with Real Madrid made 725 appearances for the Spanish giants.
He won three Champions Leagues, five La Liga titles, and two Copa del Rey crowns.
He also led Spain to glory, winning three major tournaments, Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, and Euro 2012.
Fondly referred to as ‘Saint Iker’, he is widely regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.
